Soliciting feedback for python port changes (libedit v. readline)

Python (in the terminal) continues to have issues with libedit when exiting
the interpreter, leaving the terminal mis-configured.

Please weigh in if you are concerned about how this is handled --
potentially by switching all python variants to default to readline, which
is what has already been done on python27.

Ideally we would track down when this (python+libedit) broke; if someone
has the time and motivation to do that, please raise your hand!
